In the ad, titled “First 100 Days: Virginia,” the Republican presidential hopeful and former Massachusetts governor promises to repeal “Obamacare” and reverse President Obama’s ban on offshore drilling.

The ad begins by asking what the first 100 days of a Romney presidency would mean for Virginia:

“Day One, President Romney moves to repeal Obamacare and attacks the deficit, starting with $20 billion in savings,” the voiceover says. “By Day 100, President Romney reverses Obama’s offshore drilling ban, creating thousands of new jobs for Virginians. ... President Romney’s first 100 days. For the people of Virginia, they mean new life, new energy for our state.”
